Promoting Voter Turnout
As Secretary of State, Mike will make it a high priority to urge all Hoosiers to vote in our elections.
The turnout for the 2006 Primaries was embarrassing, with a mere 23% of voters casting ballots statewide.
As the top elections official, the Secretary of State should actively urge Hoosiers to vote.
The current Secretary of State spent $1.2 million in ads promoting voter ID, but spent nothing urging Hoosiers to vote. That’s a case of misplaced priorities. Let's make sure Hoosiers are getting to the polls, then we can worry about checking the ID.
